Oh Susannah
Neil Young & Crazy Horse Lyrics


Oh Susannah
Oh Susannah
Oh Susannah
Oh Susannah

I had a dream the other night
Everything was still
I dreamed I saw Susannah
She was comin' down the hill

Oh, oh, oh, Susannah
Don't you cry for me (oh Susannah, oh Susannah)
'Cause I come from Alabama with my B-A-N-J-O on my knee
(Oh Susannah, oh Susannah)

Buckwheat cake was in her mouth
The tear was in her eye
Says I'm comin' from the South
Susannah don't you cry

Oh, oh, oh, Susannah
Don't you cry for me (oh Susannah, oh Susannah)
'Cause I come from Alabama with a B-A-N-J-O on my knee
(Oh Susannah, oh Susannah)

Rained all night the day I left
The weather, it was dry
Sun so hot I froze to death
Susannah don't you cry

Oh, oh, oh, Susannah
Don't you cry for me (oh Susannah, oh Susannah)
'Cause I come from Alabama with my B-A-N-J-O on my knee
(Oh Susannah, oh Susannah)

I had a dream the other night
Everything was still
I dreamed I saw Susannah
She was comin' down the hill

Oh, oh, oh, Susannah
Don't you cry for me (oh Susannah, oh Susannah)
'Cause I come from Alabama with my B-A-N-J-O on my knee
(Oh Susannah, oh Susannah)

Well I come from Alabama
With my banjo on my knee
I'm goin' to Louisiana
My true love for to see

Oh, oh, oh, Susannah
Don't you cry for me (oh Susannah, oh Susannah)
'Cause I come from Alabama with my B-A-N-J-O on my knee
(Oh Susannah, oh Susannah)
Yeah, I come from Alabama with my B-A-N-J-O on my knee
(Oh Susannah, oh Susannah)
Yeah, I come from Alabama with my B-A-N-J-O on my knee

I come from Alabama with my B-A-N-J-O on my knee
(Oh Susannah, oh Susannah)
I come from Alabama with my B-A-N-J-O on my knee

"Oh Susannah"

Oh Susannah [x4 then repeated constantly throughout verses]

I had a dream the other night
Everything was still
I dreamed I saw Susannah
She was comin' down the hill

Oh, oh, oh, Susannah
Don't you cry for me (oh Susannah, oh Susannah)
'cause I come from Alabama with my B-A-N-J-O on my knee
(Oh Susannah, oh Susannah)

Buckwheat cake was in her mouth
The tear was in her eye
Says I'm comin' from the South
Susannah don't you cry

Oh, oh, oh, Susannah
Don't you cry for me (oh Susannah, oh Susannah)
'cause I come from Alabama with a B-A-N-J-O on my knee
(Oh Susannah, oh Susannah)

Rained all night the day I left
The weather it was dry
Sun so hot I froze to death
Susannah don't you cry

Oh, oh, oh, Susannah
Don't you cry for me (oh Susannah, oh Susannah)
'cause I come from Alabama with my B-A-N-J-O on my knee
(Oh Susannah, oh Susannah)

I had a dream the other night
Everything was still
I dreamed I saw Susannah
She was comin' down the hill

Oh, oh, oh, Susannah
Don't you cry for me (oh Susannah, oh Susannah)
'cause I come from Alabama with my B-A-N-J-O on my knee
(Oh Susannah, oh Susannah)

Well I come from Alabama
With my banjo on my knee
I'm goin' to Louisiana
My true love for to see

Oh, oh, oh, Susannah
Don't you cry for me (oh Susannah, oh Susannah)
'cause I come from Alabama with my B-A-N-J-O on my knee
(Oh Susannah, oh Susannah)
Yeah, I come from Alabama with my B-A-N-J-O on my knee
(Oh Susannah, oh Susannah)
Yeah, I come from Alabama with my B-A-N-J-O on my knee

I come from Alabama with my B-A-N-J-O on my knee
(Oh Susannah, oh Susannah)
I come from Alabama with my B-A-N-J-O on my knee

On this day in 1847 {September 11th} Stephen Foster's "Oh! Susannah" was performed in public for the first time; it was sung by a local quintet at the Eagle Ice Cream saloon in Pittsburgh, PA And 108 years later in 1955 the Singing Dogs entered Billboard's Top 100 chart on Dec. 10th with their covered version, eventually it peaked at #22 & spent 7 weeks on the Top 100. It has also been covered in albums by James Taylor, Byrds, & Neil Young with Crazy Horse. Mr. Foster died at 37 {from a fall}
